After Davis responded, she became trapped on the second floor with the shooter who was firing through the wall at her. She then jumped out of the window and fell to the ground.

After months of recovery, Davis is now back to full duty and works as a School Resource Officer.

The Branson area sponsors National Law Enforcement Week every June and provides “scholarships” for four or five attendees who are nominated after they have been injured in the line of duty or for families who have lost an officer to a line of duty incident.

The committee elected to extend the scholarship for Davis to any time this year.
